It's been a long time since my last blog ~ I haven't been doing much gardening if at all over that time (About 4 months...) ^^
I am surprised we're even harvesting anything at all, but the passionfruits, chillies, lime (fruited for the first time), angled luffa, Rosella (and the sweet potato leaves, and choko shoots if you eat these too) are producing despite the neglect ^^
I was going to make jam with the rosella but I've introduced rosella tea to my mum and she really liked it, couple with the fact that it supposed to help with hypertension she asked me to dried them into tea instead.
I was given a dehydrator a couple of weeks ago, so I am eager to give it a try .. I picked the rosella on the weekend, but I didn't get time to do it until today, hope they're still fresh ~
These are from my parents garden, now that I've moved out to a rental place, I'll have to start establishing a garden all over again....
It is a much smaller 'playground' though... hopefully meaning easier to manage :)
This is 'it' ^^ ... we're going to dig up the lawn with permission from the landlord. Will have pots and polythene boxes on the bark mulch area as there's weedmat underneath and it would be messy to dig them up. Also, I notice the water run along the back fence where the bark mulch are during rain, so I think it's better that I don't plant into it.
We started lifting the lawn today, and found the ground underneath was very hard and clayie... I thought the soil wasn't going to be good, so I bought half a cubic metre of compost and half a cubic metre of course river sand... but not too sure whether that's enough to build up the soil now...
Hopefully I'll have an update with the garden set up ready to plant soon ~
Lastly, I bought a new basket for my new garden ~ $9 from the reject shop!
